Sustainability in the Era of Rapid Business Transformation

In partnership with Maker Sustentabilidade, SUMAQ helps companies to position themselves in accordance with the present expectations of our Society and to manage the risks and opportunities of an action in line with today's new demands
In a world affected by rapid changes and major challenges — global warming, loss of biodiversity, social inequality, fake news —, the new business environment requires companies to incorporate sustainability management into their way of operating. The key to the development of companies will be the ability to design and articulate long-term growth strategies, based not only on economic indicators, but also on critical socio-environmental variables.
Sustainability evolved from the aspiration for a better quality of life, in the 70s, to become a value and vector of change in contemporary society.

“To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society.”

“A company's ability to manage environmental, social and governance matters (ESG) demonstrates the leadership and good governance that is so essential to sustainable growth.”

Larry Fink

Annual Letter (2020) from Larry Fink, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BlackRock

Sustainability is a critical aspect

The combination of the various communication and information processing tools available at SUMAQ, whether own or from partners such as Maker, Workiva, Magellan Yates, Intralinks, JM Treiger, RWS and E-xyon, allows Companies to efficiently deal with new critical issues that could affect its Corporate Reputation and its Market Value.

One of the critical points in this process is sustainability. In this sense, the experience of Maker's partners with the fundamental aspects of sustainability, socio-environmental impact and the financial and capital markets adds value to companies and helps them to analyze, in a systemic and transversal way - economic, environmental, social and corporate governance - dissociating them from the usual analysis in isolated silos.

SUMAQ's partnership with Maker Sustainability helps the Company to examine the main elements of ESG in a systemic way, with emphasis on:

  • The definition of long-term strategies, based on sustainability scenarios;
  • The establishment of socio-environmental governance, based on solid values;
  • Establishing robust environmental, social and custody chain management systems;
  • Analysis of social and environmental compliance processes;
  • Analysis of the relationship and engagement with stakeholders;
